Loyola’s Executive Education program offers spring seminars for aspiring managers

The Sellinger School of Business and Management will hold four Executive Education seminars this spring to help mid-level professionals develop business skills that benefit their organizations and progress their careers.

Sellinger's Executive Education seminars address the professional development needs of Baltimore’s business community and improve the job performance and immediate potential of participants. Each open enrollment seminar consists of four three-hour sessions held on Loyola’s campuses or off-site locations over the course of two weeks. Early registration discounts are available up to one month prior to the start of each seminar.

  • High Impact Leadership seminars offer professionals seeking higher positions of responsibility and accountability the skills to solve problems, lead change and maximize personal and organizational effectiveness. Ed Rothstein, former garrison commander at Fort Meade in Maryland and founder of ERA Advisory, will lead the sessions, which take place on Feb. 21, 23 and 28 and March 2.

  • Innovating for Competitive Advantage seminars equip managers with a data-driven approach for creating and maintaining a competitive advantage through innovation and continuous improvement. Seminars will use a mix of brief lectures, discussions, videos, and case studies led by Gerard Athaide, Ph.D., professor and department chair of marketing. Sessions will be held on March 21, 23, 28 and 30.

  • Finance and Accounting for Business Leadership seminars help non-financial participants develop an understanding of terms and techniques used in managerial accounting and financial analysis. Jalal Soroosh, Ph.D., professor of accounting, and Mark Johnson, Ph.D., associate professor of finance at Sellinger, will lead the sessions, which take place on April 18, 20, 25 and 27.

Sellinger has designed Executive Education for managers with eight or more years of experience seeking promotion to higher level management and director positions. The non-degree program will help participants network with other professionals in the region and expand leadership acumen through personal and group outcomes.

In addition to seminars for individuals, Executive Education offers custom seminars designed for organizations based on their development needs. Sellinger experts can collaborate with organizations to offer specific topical sessions or broader multi-faceted programs.
